A life of gratitude
So much to be thankful for
I look back and I smile
I rejoice and I shout out loud: Thank you Lord!
You have shown me favour
Not that I deserve anything
But you are good and you love me so
You give me more than I ever dare to ask
How gracious you are and how generous too
Superb in your kindness and compassion
Righteous and true to your holy Name
You save! You deliver! You heal!
You do all these and more. . . I am free, free, free!
How can I not be grateful? How can I not give thanks?
And so unceasingly my heart will sing to you
Songs of love and songs of praise
I am thankful and I am grateful
Join me, my friends, and give praise
You will find your life changing
Gratitude enlarges the heart
Relaxes the mind
Lifts up the spirit
Purifies the soul
How do I know?
It is what I have experienced
All these years, all these years
Alleluia! Praise the Lord!
Take a few minutes a day
Simply sit with no distractions
Close your eyes
Show him gratitude
Show him your appreciation
Pray for your benefactors
Angels he sends day after day
Be grateful for positive things in your life
Be grateful for bad things that turn out right
Be grateful for your God loves you dearly
Be grateful for people he sends you
Be ever so grateful. Amen.
